Skating, skiing, sisters, horses, music, cats, snow, and books surrounded Jean Stringam as she grew up in Alberta, Canada. She loves swapping stories with her family, making music, and exploring somewhere new.

When I need a kick-in-the-pants re creative language use, I read a little Shakespeare.  When I want to gauge the effectiveness of my plot line, I read a little Orson Scott Card.  When I want to dream with words, I read a little Dylan Thomas or Gerard Manley Hopkins. 

Upcoming Works
